Try something new this season! Decorate your home with haute holiday hues that are anything but conventional.
Red and green have been repping Christmas since, like, forever, but we think there’s a little bit more you can do when it comes to your holiday color palette. Get a little crazy this year and spread the holiday cheer to a few other color schemes.
Break out of the red and green rut with pretty Christmas color schemes that will wow your guests. From pink and green to silver and gold, we show you how to get your holiday decor looking merry and bright for the season.
Each Christmas season welcomes a new opportunity to deck out your home with a new Christmas color scheme. Stick with a variation of the classic green and red or branch out to something more bold and modern.
SILVER AND GOLD
When it comes to classic holiday decor color schemes, there’s nothing more appealing than a sparkling, glitzy combination of silver and gold. Mixed metals look festive and bright without obstructing the color palette you have going in your home year-round.
WHITE, BLUE AND GOLD
Here’s the sophisticated Christmas color palette your life has been missing. It can go traditional, coastal, glam, or edgy and modern.
PINK AND EVERYTHING
Do you dare to use pink on Christmas? Your holiday tables, your color scheme, even your wall. Combined with any color that you can think of, it can actually look totally festive.
PURPLE AND RED
Purple has long been known as the color of royalty, so bring a regal touch to your holiday decor by mixing it with red. The dark purple makes the red stand out and is an especially great option in a room full of wood.
Over red and green? This seasonal scene shows how bold jewel tones can be incorporated into holiday decor. Journey to the lush tropics where lavish colors and patterns take inspiration from rich vegetation and the iridescent feathers of wild birds.
BLUE AND GREEN
Because blue and green are regularly used together in everyday looks, they can be the perfect place to start when branching out (pun intended) from the traditional red and green used for Christmas.
NAVY AND GOLD
This dramatic color palette makes any space more glam. Navy is rich and dark, and gives off a relaxed and cool feel. Gold, on the other hand, is hot, vibrant and sparkly. Together, they make any setting look lush.
EGG BLUE AND RED
By pairing the hue with red and white, the beloved color takes on an entirely new identity as a contemporary holiday classic. This mostly monochrome effect is both playful and spartan.
YELLOW AND ORANGE
Yellow and orange are definitely outside the proverbial box when it comes to holiday colors. These two colors also work nicely with holiday garland. With the citrus added, this entry has a more lighthearted and inviting look.
